Excerpt from Master Lu’s Q&A (243), 2 August 2018
22 June 2018
I recently received a thought message regarding the gruesome scenes in the Hell associated with sexual misconduct.
Seated on a lotus, the Master’s Dharma body appeared mid-air in the Guan Yin Citta Centre. In the sky, Guan Yin Bodhisattva, the Buddha, Nanjing Bodhisattva and the Dharma-protecting Bodhisattvas all appeared. The Master was examining a case regarding a disciple who had breached the Buddhist precepts. A large display suddenly emerged in the air, detailing to me the horrifying scenes in the Hell associated with sexual misconduct.
The Hell associated with sexual misconduct
In a pitch-dark cave lay a deep and gigantic pool as large as three or four soccer fields. Many souls, male and female, were submerged, with only their heads visible above the surface, and they all screamed in agony and terror. These horrifying howls were beyond the imagination of human beings, and it made my hair stand on end as the cries echoed around the cavern. It was terrifying.
On the display, the scenes changed. One soul, in obvious pain and thoroughly soaked in stinking liquid excrement, was sent to the pool’s edge. He wailed: “The moment I was thrown into the pool of excrement, my ears, nose and mouth were immediately filled with the liquid. It was so overwhelming that I almost passed out!
“The excrement pool was similar to the septic tanks used in the Human Realm – full of faeces. We (the offenders) felt a piercing pain as soon as our bodies touched the liquid. Small worms and other unknown creatures were biting us. The excrement pool was wide and deep with no boundary. Even if you could swim to the edge, there was no way you could scramble out as the excrement made our bodies far too slippery. The only option was to endure the suffering in the pool.”
The scene on the display switched to another Hell. It was a huge cave. This Hell was burning red and the air was extremely hot. A lot of iron beds lay below, with sharp spikes glowing red hot on the surface and fire burning underneath. Male and female offenders, their cries echoing around the Hell, lay naked on these torturous iron beds, undergoing their punishment. The Hell was enormous. People involved in adultery and sexual misconduct will be punished here.
As I woke from my sleep, the scene ended.
Master Jun Hong Lu’s reply:
That’s totally correct. There is indeed an Excrement Hell. It is too late to scream if you end up there.
